    I am having difficulty downloading technology! Besides that, Dr. Carasik's presentation is excellent, however the Guidebook does not provide vocal repetition of the Hebrew words, nor transliteration, which requires going back into the lecture to listen to the Hebrew words. Without an audible component, learning to speak the language is extremely impaired except for perhaps an hearing savant! Recording each new vocabulary with a control mechanism is necessary to master speaking ability!it a few

    I would give it zero stars if I could. It does not work. I want to download a course for which I paid. Instructions are "Click My Digital LIbrary". The app had no such link. If I searh for it, it says that it does not exist. Not for prime time. I presume I will need to get my money back.

  3. guest-avatar

    I used to buy the DVD versions of these courses, but lately I've discovered that it is more convenient to stream them, either using the website, or more often, this app. Either way, I always use Chromecast so that the course plays on my TV (I never view the course directly on my tablet). I've done this with other video apps, and this one is really one of the best. The only problem is that occasionally, if I pause the streaming, some sort of confusion occurs between the streaming (via Chromecast) and the app, such that the latter has lost contact with the former. This is obviously very frustrating. Either I want to resume playback, but the app thinks it's already playing or the reverse: I want to pause but the app thinks it is already paused. However, some other streaming apps (including the one for an extremely popular streaming service) are far worse in this regard. The Great Courses app usually works fine and I can live with the occasional hiccups. I realize that what I've described could be a Chromecast problem which The Great Courses has no control over.

    Forces landscape mode; settings not responsive; file downloads only accessible through app; does not remember your place; navigation, scrolling difficult. this is an antiquated app - badly needs improvement. ‐‐-‐-------------- I posted that months ago. Still no improvement. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER.

    Great courses but app is buggy. Almost any interruption (e.g. un/plugging power) causes app to restart play so same course is playing twice - out of sync from two different positions - and controls only affect one instance. Have to exit app to shut down both plays & restart, hoping double play won't be triggered again.

  6. guest-avatar

    Makes math fun and shows many useful applications and tricks to keep it interesting. Covers a wide field of uses as well as showing many interelations between math and other fields. Quite well done.

  7. guest-avatar

    Outstanding. The Photography series has an outstanding, interesting and personable lecturer in Joe Sartore. Interesting and fun to listen and learn from him. I take a lot of photography courses and this is hands down the best.

  8. guest-avatar

    This app crashes quite a bit for me and overall the functiinality isn't great. Let's get thing straight, I love the great courses, I love the content and the material, but the app is clunky. Someitmes videos or lessons just flat out don't work for me, forcing me to restart. Also the integration with Bluetooth isnt the best, often times when I'm done listening in my car, the app will keep playing forcing me to find where I'd stopped listening before. This is annoying

  9. guest-avatar

    The content of lectures across TGC is of course variable in quality, but I enjoy the ones I've paid for. This review concerns the app, however, which has frustratingly slow download speeds for lectures even with strong wifi connection. I recall it used to be faster. Also unable to exit the app with audio playing in the background, which really defeats the purpose of having an audio only mode (as opposed to audio + video). At least there are no 3rd party ads.

  10. guest-avatar

    Glad this is available but would dearly love a sleep timer. I listen to lectures to relax and sometimes this is very effective. So much so I awake 10 lectures later. Also pleased with the audio only choice, again for the same reason. Finally, not everyone needs HD all the time, a choice of SD would help those of us on data plans.

  11. guest-avatar

    Great app; makes it easy to play courses you've bought. I like being able to switch between video mode and audio mode so I just listen while driving. Have had no problems with the app.

  12. guest-avatar

    Great app! Convenient to use at the gym or anywhere on the go. I love to download the lessons and listen on the plane.

  13. guest-avatar

    I love these lectures and this app allows you to take them with you. The video quality is excellent. It's great to be able to fill otherwise empty hours with your favorite lectures.

  14. guest-avatar

    The app was great, until the update, now if you start a downloaded lecture and then stop it, it will not restart. I have tried removing and redownloading and that doesn't seem to work. It will allow you to stream it from the internet, but we travel where there is no internet. Please fix!

    Courses are great, but the app is VERY buggy. PDFs can't be swiped through and always reopen on the first page. App crashes once in a while. It often forgets when you paused. In offline mode it sometimes won't let you access downloaded content. It will claim you've run out of space, even if you haven't (you have to tinker with settings each time that happens). It eventually stopped playing downloaded content completely and not even phone restart or re-intallation would fix it.

  16. guest-avatar

    App not intuitive. App halts presentation occasionally requiring user to manually resume/restart presentation. App should have ability to slow/accelerate speed of presentation. App should show presentation time remaining.

  17. guest-avatar

    App worked great until last update. Now downloaded audio courses cannot play unless I continue on from a non-downloaded course. App now does not stay connected to car's Bluetooth. Please revert last update. Response to request was quick. The app now works well. I focus on history courses and they are excellent!

  18. guest-avatar

    I am enjoying the lectures very much. The fact that I can download them to watch offline is a big plus. The only downside is that the only place I seem to be able to download them is to my phone. Love that they offer free selections each month, so I can get a taste of other lectures and see if I am interested in purchasing the whole thing later.

  19. guest-avatar

    The iPad version only supports landscape mode. This (Android) version is comfortable in both landscape and portrait modes. Plus, it allows me to have more control from the default screen, such as fast forward/backward in 15 or 30 second increments.

  20. guest-avatar

    These courses are wonderful. Wide range of subjects. I'm now retired and the courses are in 30 minute segments. Allows me to continue learning at an easy pace. Highly recommended!

  21. guest-avatar

    Very well made,easy to hear and understand. Clarity of instructor is outstanding.

  22. guest-avatar

    App works quite well for me. The only problem is I changed the ratio of the displayed video to see how it looked. Do not like the changed ratio, but cannot figure out how to go back.

    The app is so easy to use. The courses download quickly, they are easy to see and hear clearly.

  24. guest-avatar

    I like the courses. However, I have to completely shutdown the app when not in use, because the app inexplicably starts playing on its own. Bluetooth speaker disconnects randomly trigger stop and start playing. I have to be on top of this app lest it misbehaves.

  25. guest-avatar

    So far, not happy. Made an account and the app doesn't recognize my email address, only the website. And the app is where I was going to do most of my viewing. After some messing around I found out you have to have a separate app if you're a plus member....really?

    Great app - very convenient. I use the DVDs at home but I like having access to learning sessions when I'm on the road, too.

  27. guest-avatar

    Works great. Very convienent to have easy and quick on-line access to many of my programs.

  28. guest-avatar

    Lydia Dittbrenner


    I like the app however I wish it connected to the website so I could see all of the titles I don't have and I could shop while listening to one of my programs

  29. guest-avatar

    My only complaint is how fickle the app can be when in an area with poor signal, but trying to watch downloaded content. Whatever method it uses to verify content can limit access even for downloaded lectures if you don't have good signal.

    Juanita Welch Accardo


    I use the desktop version during the day, but use this phone app at night, before sleeping, and when waiting overly long for appointments

  31. guest-avatar

    Good app. Wish I could just easily listen to the audio offline.

  32. guest-avatar

    Won't connect to a car. Won't regulate volume. Stops playing without any reason and then won't resume a track without re-installation. I guess it would be easier to pay for a course and then download its pirated version in conventional mp3, than use this app.

  33. guest-avatar

    Huge variety, professors in the tops of their fields, comprehensive & easy to understand.

  34. guest-avatar

    Great way to continue learning interesting material. This app works as well as one could hope.

  35. guest-avatar

    Eaay to figure out; I love having such easy access to the courses I've purchased! I download lectures to my phone and we listen on long car drives.

  36. guest-avatar

    I'll separate my review to the content which is awesome and the app which leaves much to be desired. Sadly the iOS version is much better.

  37. guest-avatar

    Great app, I love being able to access my classes anywhere, anytime and learn!!!

  38. guest-avatar

    Attractive interface. Easy to use and does everything it's supposed to.

  39. guest-avatar

    I love The Great Courses! I have listened to quite a few courses on Audible, but having the videos is so much more engaging. There are so many fascinating courses, so much to be learned and I find it very rewarding and enlightening.

  40. guest-avatar

    My biggest problem is the course guide. You have to scroll too long to find what you want to read. It should be interactive from a table of contents.

  41. guest-avatar

    Difficult to use, can't pause with headphone controls, crashes if I don't have internet access (i.e. every time I take the Sunday), They need to make the app work as well as a podcast or rethink their business model...

  42. guest-avatar

    The easiest way to do courses on the phone and works well for playing lectures but downloading lectures for offline use is routinely problematic, and it often loses where I left off.

  43. guest-avatar

    Has everything I want. Access to all my courses. Playback speed control. And an audio-only option for the video lectures. I'm really enjoying it.

  44. guest-avatar

    Love these learning courses. I download to my phone,and watch and listen when I have time. It's great!!

  45. guest-avatar

    Loses connection when casting. Requires continual restarts.

  46. guest-avatar

    Lois Baranowski


    Easy to navigate in the app & launches videos promptly too! AWESOME!!!!

  47. guest-avatar

    It does not have adequate ability to save your place. In addition it doesn't work across platforms well.

  48. guest-avatar

    Akuma Dakuplayz


    It's a good app, but I can't shop for more courses on it it just plays the ones you have bought and samples.

  49. guest-avatar

    Excellent lecturers. Download/stream choice assures high quality audio

  50. guest-avatar

    Good courses on a variety of stuff. Enjoying the meditation, science and philosophy courses but excellent courses on other stuff too.

  51. guest-avatar

    You can't seem to browse all your courses - only ones you've downloaded or have free access to. That seems an oversight.

  52. guest-avatar

    Cheryl Przybylski


    Varied content that is easy to follow .

  53. guest-avatar

    Works well locally, but sometimes falls out of sync with casted video following a couple of skips backwards.

  54. guest-avatar

    Constant Chryses


    Cannot play without internet even when lectures have been downloaded. Too many glitches and lack of functionality

  55. guest-avatar

    These courses have changed my life. I wish the educators I had in my many years of school where is good as the instructors in these courses. From music to physics I've loved everyone I've taken!

  56. guest-avatar

    I love the Great Courses and really like to be able to watch them on my tablet. Downloading is easier for me than hoping I have WiFi.

  57. guest-avatar

    Shirley Desnoyers


    So simple to use! I am able to enjoy my classes wherever I am.

  58. guest-avatar

    I would recommend the use of this app. Easy to use and I can switch from video to audio easily. A must have for The Great Courses series on the go.

  59. guest-avatar

    Thus far, only sample lectures are available on the app, and nothing else can be downloaded, which renders the app pretty worthless. I subscribed to the Great Courses. I want the app to WORK

  60. guest-avatar

    Extremely informative lectures. Topics are well covered. Wish I had more time to enjoy them.

  61. guest-avatar

    These are great courses taught by extraordinary, inspiring professors. So many subjects are covered in depth that almost anything one might want to learn is available.

    Easy to access. Great learning tool.

  64. guest-avatar

    This app does just what I want. My only gripe is that it sucks battery even when paused.

    I enjoy being able to easily access and watch the various courses in my library.

  66. guest-avatar

    Great Courses is a great way to get knowledge, without reading much.

    Matthias Koenig


    Lectures are good. App is bit slow to download them.

  68. guest-avatar

    Not what I expected. Thought there would be pictures, videos, interviews. Not some guy sitting in a chair explaining baseball. I would like a refund.

  69. guest-avatar

    So far, so good. Course is a great resource and source of learning.

  70. guest-avatar

    Christopher Hughes


    Terrific content and easy to use app!

  71. guest-avatar

    Can't search? I can search for courses in this app like the online website for Great Courses Am I doing something wrong or is the app incapable of searching the large catalog of available courses?

  72. guest-avatar

    app is wonderful to use work on and off line wonderfully!

  73. guest-avatar

    Awesome app. No issues. Great content!

  74. guest-avatar

    Very intuitive. Runs smoothly

    Love that I can keep all my lectures well organized and on my mobile phone so I can access them whenever I want.

  77. guest-avatar

    I really appreciate the availability of the courses that I have purchased. I really appreciate THE GREAT COURSES PLUS. Thank you.

  78. guest-avatar

    We enjoyed every single lecture, highly recommend!❤️

  79. guest-avatar



    I'm unable to get videos to download.

  80. guest-avatar

    Easy too download courses for later viewing.

  81. guest-avatar

    Love the courses, great opportunity for me to continue learning.

  82. guest-avatar

    Take your library whenever you are, on any device.

  83. guest-avatar

    Love this app, can study any where I find myself. Great!

  84. guest-avatar

    it works well even while I'm working the treadmill at the gym.

  85. guest-avatar

    Easy to use...many nice features

  86. guest-avatar

    User friendly, convenient

  87. guest-avatar

    Richard Summers


    There's something for everyone here. Wait for the sale, and learn something new.

  88. guest-avatar

    While bug fixes are fine, removing a vital feature makes me want to have the previous version back, if that were possible. This version no longer allows pausing the video without dimming and without persistent, bright control icons obscuring the chart the picture. What genius decided that was a good idea? If this can be controlled, I don't see how. t. reed

  89. guest-avatar

    This app sucks. It does not allow me to do what I was told to do this morning after 40 minutes on hold waiting for an associate. I don't think he knew what to do either. It doesn't do what I need.

  90. guest-avatar

    This app delivers the contents of our library, perfectly!

  91. guest-avatar

    Issues playing downloaded lectures since last update. They show as downloaded but there is no audio when i try to play them. Ive emailed support. UPDATE: Download playback issues have been reaolved. No issues with playing downloaded lectures now. Thanks for fixing it! Bumped to 4 stars

  92. guest-avatar

    Continually crashes playing downloaded files

  93. guest-avatar

    Ongoing problems downloading. Doesn't remember the place I left off when I return to a course. Download manager baffling and uninformative. When it is playing, quality is good. (And quality of the COURSES is generally good to excellent.)

  94. guest-avatar

    The app simply works perfectly!

  95. guest-avatar

    I find the app easy to use and fairly intuitive and self-explanatory..... I have had Great Courses in the house for years, but only started using the app a week ago. What I like best is that I can LISTEN to a DVD course I bought, whose professor I don't like watching and whose content doesn't NEED watching. This way way can listen to the excellent oral delivery of this prof without being distracted, and do something at the same time. With the Great Courses it is hard to know sometimes whether to chose audio or video, and this app helps me recover and liberates me from the TV when I've made the wrong choice.

  96. guest-avatar

    Your servers are so slow, Ive spent $50 for a lecture series that simply wont load. Its beeb this way for a year.

  97. guest-avatar

    I can't say anything about the content of this app because the app would not let me create a profile. Went onto my computer and made a profile. Tried signing in and got an error message again. I'd love to know what's inside and spend some money but the app won't let me. Why do you not want my money "The Great Courses"? Does your company operate on dashed dreams instead instead of financial transactions???

  98. guest-avatar

    It's just showing me 1 video and 20 audio. Very limited content.

  99. guest-avatar

    The content is great, the app is buggy. Many times if the internet is not available the app will not start, even in offline mode. The downloads are getting interrupted if the screen turns off, and you cannot start it again unless you force stop the app. If changing phones, even if you use the same SD card you cannot make the app see the previous downloads, and you have you download again all the lectures, which is time consuming and annoying. As I said, the content is great, but not the app

  100. guest-avatar

    Best way to augment any day, any subject and any fascinating opportunity for growth.
